But I am finally back. Life has been super crazy with the school year starting back up. I haven’t been up to much else, but I am hiding my hair right now with tree braids.
Tree braids are when your hair is cornrowed with the extensions pulled through as it is braided. They are supposed to last 6-8 weeks and look like a sew-in from the back. I decided to get some because I became bored with my hair and needed to put it away for a while. I did not want micros simply because of the amount of time to get them done, so I opted for tree braids.
They took around 4-5 hours to complete and I am very happy with my decision. It feels good not to have to worry about my hair for a little while. I’m not quite sure on the best way to take care of them or if they will be a good thing for my hair, but I’ll find out in October.
So far, I’ve had them in for 2 weeks and have washed them once. I washed using the Crown and Glory Method and used a mix of Braid spray/Infusium 23 for a leave in. I don’t spray them down every day and only use oil on my scalp or oil sheen when I feel it is necessary. My plan is to keep them in until fall break, with the hope that my hair will be the length I want it to be to do mini twists.
My braids were done by Rochelle Woods of www.naturalopulence.com. I met her at the natural hair expo in July and received an email about braids. I had the cash, so I got them done. She was very professional and did not braid tight at all. She also has her own line of natural hair products.
